The Philips Stadion of the PSV Eindhoven is a field complicated, and true is that the Barcelona drags an authentic rosary of injuries to his backs during the last days.

Until seven players has in the dry dam, but in spite of the low will be able to range an eleven tremendously competitive to face up to the Dutch, fraguar the victory and, like this, begin the week of the best possible form before going back to centre in LaLiga Santander 2018-19. The absence of Luis Suárez in attack could give back to Leo Messi to the position of 'false nine', with Dembélé, Coutinho or Malcom protecting him in the flanks. To Valverde will not be missing him options. This is our forecast for the party:

Possible alignments of the PSV Eindhoven-FC Barcelona

  • PSV Eindhoven: Zoet; Angeliño, Viergever, Schwaab, Dumfries; Hendrix, Pereiro, Rosario; Bergwijn, Of Jong and Lozano.
  • FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Umtiti, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, To. Vidal; Dembélé, Coutinho and Messi.

Ter Stegen

The German archer, in spite of that stirred from did days the possibility that had rest against the PSV Eindhoven, will play finally 'forced' by the drop by injury of Jasper Cillessen, the one who theoretically was the elected for said party. Once again, Ter Stegen will have the aim to leave the goal to zero, something that so only has achieved in five occasions in what it goes of season 2018-19. It will have to help him, and a lot, a defence that is to a low level this campaign.


In the defensive section, do not expect too many surprises. Everything aims to that Samuel Umtiti and Gerard Hammered will form the saga of head offices, although Clément Lenglet is also a reliable option already is recovered. Jordi Alba will occupy the left side and Nélson Semedo the right, because of the drop by injury of Sergi Roberto.

Rakitic-Busquets-Arturo Vidal

With Sergio Busquets like indisputable in the diagrams of Ernesto Valverde, one of the midfield players that will accompany him to the one hundred by one hundred is Arturo Vidal, to the one who the doors of the titularity have opened him wide open because of the injuries, and also to his good performance. Rakitic, already recovered of his injury and with the high competitive, could accompany him in the medullary. The options of Aleñá and Denis Suárez also could have weight.


Coutinho Already has the high competitive and all the ballots to accompany in the front of attack to Leo Messi, that will act of 'false nine' because of the drop of Luis Suárez. The another position will occupy it Dembélé or Malcom, although the French wins whole after the goal that achieved in Wanda Metropolitan against the Athletic of Madrid. Munir The Haddadi will expect an opportunity in the bench.
